Correction to: Genome evolution of SARS-CoV-2 and its virological characteristics
Inflammation and Regeneration volume 40, Article number: 41 (2020)
Correction to: Inflamm Regener 40, 17 (2020)
After publication of the original article  the authors spotted an error in the last sentence of the 1st paragraph of “Phylogeny of SARS-CoV-2” in the Main text. This sentence originally stated:
In addition, the genus Betacoronavirus is reported to be divided into four lineages (subgenera): Lineage A (subgenus Embecovirus), Lineage B (subgenus Sarbecovirus), Lineage C (subgenus Merbecovirus), and Lineage D (subgenus Nobecovirus) [7, 8].
However, Bat Hp-betaCoV belong to Hibecovirus. Therefore, the corrected sentence reads as followed:
In addition, the genus Betacoronavirus is reported to be divided into five subgenera: Sarbecovirus, Hibecovirus, Nobecovirus, Merbecovirus, and Embecovirus [7, 8].
This error also affected Figure 1. The incorrect (Fig. 1) and correct (Fig. 2) version of figure 1 are shown in this correction article. The original article has been updated to rectify the above errors.
